    He's not very friendly but man oh man do the raisons work even our wild girls are willing to steal a raison from my hand.. lol and poor Walker I went out and they were all way down on the south side of the pasture and I said "Hey girls" and it was like a stamped of goats coming at me and they left him down there he didn't know what to do so came running too so I am thinking just a matter of time and he will be friendly too! and probably just in time to catch him and get him out so he is not with the girls all the time.

    Oh man he is a looker. He is built like a tank. Our goats all love raisins and I end up with hoof prints on my legs and back. Congrats on the new guy.

    Thanks for the laugh - I have a vision in my mind of him standing there wondering where the heck all his girls went!!!

    Congrats - he's a little tank!

    Thanks for the compliments guys, we think he's a pretty cool dude too! and lol Trace it made me laugh too, he couldn't believe his eyes when they all came running to the dreaded human and left him standing there, he thought their world was revolving around him LOL

    I dont know much about boer goats but he looks nice and wide in the chest area and is nice and big boned. BUT, I wonder about his topline, Im sure its fine but it has quite a dip to it.

    Hmm ok I was wondering about his top line as well.. It doesn't seem as dipped now as it did when we first got him could it be a growing thing or a nerves thing? I should get some new pictures of him.. But for breeding commercial goats if that is a conformation fault in him will it cause us problems raising commercial meat??
